Re: Surname Prepositions / Prefix

Personally I'd prefer to keep a family tree compliant with the GEDCOM standard, particularly to export the data into other programs. In this case it's hard because of two reasons: The GEDCOM 5.5.1 specification is not perfectly clear on the role of name pieces, including SPFX, the "surname prefix". ...

Re: How to keep Saved Chart while merge 2 projects?

David
thanks for the suggestion: it could be perfect, but in my real research there are Saved Charts in both projects, as you foreseen.

Mike
thanks for clarifications.

At the moment I see no other solution that recreate the same Charts from scratch. :cry:

Re: Keep saved chart on merge files

Thank you Jane, this plugin is very useful. I am not sure if the Family Record IDs are also stored in the Chart so that might mean they also need renumbering. A Chart handles individuals through IDs, I guess. If I modify individual IDs then reopen a Saved Chart, its appearance is changed because lin...

Source citation for parents-child relationship

Where is the best place to add a Citation to a Source that demonstrate a parents-child relationship ?
Typically a source like 'John Smith son of Bill and Mary'.
The field should be a good place: it accepts Notes, and Sources to the Notes... but it doesn't accept a simple Source citation!
